Americans consume about 20 percent of the world’s oils, some healthier than others. Which ones do you currently have in your pantry and which ones should be there instead? Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil is among the oils yet another health expert recommends using.

As this Naturally Savvy article by Andrea Donsky, RHN explained, “Most seed oils are highly processed polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) substances that are extracted from canola (rapeseed), corn, cottonseed, grapeseed, rice bran, safflower, soy and sunflower … The seeds are exposed to extremely high heat, which in turn oxidizes the omega-6 fatty acids found in them.” 

Omega-6s can be highly pro-inflammatory. Excess inflammation is associated with many health risks. “Be sure to choose Malaysian palm oil that has been produced on sustainable plantations,” she advised readers. “It is the richest source of vitamin E tocotrienols and pro-vitamin A carotenoids as well as provides a balanced fatty acid profile.”
